I think I would really truly miss the smell of the occasional piece of warm French bread if it weren't for a gluten-free baguette I buy at Whole Foods (I think the brand is Against the Grain?) It makes the best garlic bread! It's a little eggier than most baguettes, but I actually prefer that.

That bread alone has saved me from missing anything bread-like. Even my non-gluten-free housemate likes it just fine.

Now if a perfect pasta would just come along...

ps. (don't get me wrong, there are plenty gluten-free versions I enjoy, but none matches a real semolina)

I can't stand the rice pasta, it's just not the same texture - but I find that the corn pasta is good, found at Trader Joes. Still searching for a good bread, Udis, Rudis, tapioca bread, yuck.

Against the Grain baguettes are like food crack.......once you have them, it's tough to not buy them. I think it is the best gluten-free French-type bread out there. It is delicious grilled and used to make bruschetta.

food crack :lol: indeed

I make crostini out of them. Cut them into 1 inch rounds on the diagonal, brush them with garlic /herbed EVOO and lightly broil quickly. 1-2 minutes.

Then, let them cool.

Slather them with some goat cheese and a dollop of marinated roasted peppers (make these beforehand---use yellow, red and green grilled or broiled peppers that have been seeded and cut into strips and marinated in some balsamic vinegar, EVOO, thyme, basil and oregano for a few hours--and placed in the fridge)

and you have a taste treat to die for.

The people who make toast? ..............will come over to your cubicle to see what smells so good.....!

LOL! This thread is like food porn :D

I'm traveling in China for work this week and I must say it's interesting ... they don't have a lot of processed foods here so I "think" I'm pretty safe. I'm sticking to veggies and meats... they do have awesome fresh fruits so I fill up at breakfast. One thing I noticed was they keep the cooked bacon on top of sliced bread. I could not for the life of me figure out why, but then I realized they are using the bread to soak up the grease. Sadly, this also means no bacon for Cory :(

I also brought some Lara bars and gluten-free pretzels to tide me over :D Every place I've eaten has been very accommodating when I ask for no sauces but they have no clue what gluten is...

HAHAHA!!!

Sometimes I go all out and roast garlic bulbs and let them cool and spread the soft

garlic with oil and melted butter all over the baguette before I lightly toast it.....

So, off to the store on the morrow!

Ohhhhhhh......that is so yummy! Looks like I'll be buying baguettes this week-end! :lol:

Have a good trip! I always wondered how easy it would be to eat gluten free in Asia, so you'll have to let us know more. What about the soy sauce or do they not use a lot of that? Dedicated woks? I haven't had Chinese food in years. The one place that has a gluten-free menu, P.F. Changs, does not have very good food, IMO. So I go without. Not the same as real Chinese food, either.

Gemini, I have AWESOME Chinese recipes if you are interested. They are authentic and taste as good or BETTER than eating out. Honest. Trust me!

Accidentally glutened myself last night at dinner. Had beef with "sauce" duuuhhhhhhhhhhh but only minor issues today. It was an interesting evening talking with my Asia co-workers on gluten issues :D Rather difficult to explain but I think I got the point across....

Traveling home tomorrow, it's been a really good trip and only 1 minor glutening... I call that a success!

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
